    It's not new in the Arabic world either; the 1920 saw many attempts to
    "rationalize" Arabic writing, to get rid of the connectedness etc. For an
    historical overview, see:

          Author/Artist: Hamm, Roberto, 1939-
          Title: Pour une typographie arabe : contribution technique à la
    démocratisation de la culture arabe / Roberto Hamm.
          Published/Created: Paris (1-3, rue Feutrier, 75018) : Sindbad, 1975.
          Physical Description: 193 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.
